Opening reception with the artist Thursday, May 7th from 6-9 pm.
In May, the gallery is pleased to present Recent Paintings by Portland area artist, Jill Mayberg. Recently featured on OPB’s Oregon Art Beat, Jill’s art is often compared to that of children, a comparison she has worked hard to develop. She values the spontaneity and openness of folk art, and uses artistically inspiring journeys to the zoo to create her colorful and whimsical images.
Her work is in many public and private collections and is also exhibited in galleries and juried exhibitions all over the country. She has been awarded grants and an Artist Trust Fellowship.
She has had a lifelong interest in peace and social justice, women’s equality, animal rights, the ideas of The Enlightenment and humanist ideals. She believes that art is a universal language that can bring people together, foment curiosity and forge connections.
Please Join us for a reception for the artist First Thursday May 7th from 6-9 pm
